September 30, 2014 Update/Rationale:
As of 31/03/2014:

Policy work has commenced as well as outreach to federal and provincial partners. Work will accelerate in the spring as part of the process to determine a strategy to address the sunsetting of the Powley authority as well as the MNSIRD exercise to clarify roles and responsibilities.

The changing fiscal realities of the new departmental approach to working with AROs has led to the launch, on January 15, 2014, of the new competitive process for project funding for AROs. Over 170 proposals were received and are currently being assessed.

AES: Underway – Work on establishing clear objectives, roles and responsibilities has begun and is accounting for the changing realities affecting Powley and the FICP generally.
2. Develop a comprehensive Performance Measurement Strategy specific to the FICP and Powley Initiative. AANDC will develop a comprehensive Performance Measurement Strategy specific to the FICP and Powley Initiative that will articulate clear and measureable outcomes.

AANDC will take steps to ensure that FICP and Powley Initiative objectives and outcomes are communicated and accessible to all stakeholders and compliant to new fiscal realities of the departmental approach of ARO project funding.

As of 31/03/2014:

A comprehensive Performance Measurement Strategy for Sub-Program 1.2.4 (Métis and Non-Status Indian Relations and Métis Rights Management) has been developed and is proceeding to the approvals process.

As part of the new competitive process for project funding for AROs, MNSI organizations are eligible for funding under theme 3, "Métis and Non-Status Indians Partnerships and Policy Development", which relates directly with the FICP and Powley initiative. This was announced to stakeholders on November 18th, 2013.
